Against all odds.. we had sun today! Sweet hubby made us some crispy cod fillets, mashed potatoes and corn for lunch before I headed off to go swimming. On my trip to the pool I go through Springdale and over the Stark Street Bridge and up the side of the cliff with the Sandy River far below. There are 2 waterfalls on the side of the road, this small one is my favorite, it's very pretty. I pulled over to the side of the road and used my iPhone to snap this shot of the sun sparkling on the top of the falls. There are little green sprouts on the bushes! Spring is coming!
A shot further back.. see the sun on the water and lighting the ferns?Mossy green-ness....
After swimming I went to the historic downtown Gresham to visit a spinning and wool shop - I passed by the Gresham History Museum and got this photo.. I have always loved the architecture of this building with the brick work, the half timbers, the stained glass. Wouldn't you love a house like this? The wool shop wasn't open.. dang.
When I got home, hubby was on the deck cleaning the pond a bit and blowing the debris off the deck. I snapped a shot of the Daphne bush by our deck.. I can't wait until the buds open up, it's the most fragrant flower!
Our daffodils started to make progress to open today.. :-)Almost!
One single daffodil is in bloom. Sweeeeeeet!
One of the bushes in our yard is ready to bloom.. I'm not sure what this one is! :-)
Now I need to get busy making some more earrings and necklaces for Vista House. I'm doing some volunteer work for Vista House tomorrow and I think we're visiting with our youngest son and his family on Sunday. I hope you have some fun plans! Thanks for stopping by and Happy St. Patrick's Day tomorrow! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
